Tips and ideas for teaching high school ELA

Hi, I'm Heidi !

Secondary ELA teacher, teacher author, avid traveler, and amateur photographer. 


Born and raised in the Carolinas and now residing in sunny Florida with my husband. 


Currently in my 13th year teaching – 11 years in the US and 2 overseas. 


Huge fan of traveling – I’ve visited as many countries as I have states (if not more). I’m happiest exploring new places, soaking up local cultures, and wandering side streets. 

You're in the right place if



  • you spend way too much of your precious free time writing lesson plans and creating resources. 
  •  you’re a new teacher (or a even a seasoned one) looking for teaching ideas for all things secondary ELA.
